Usage examples for marbled

  1. How perfect also the description of a wave breaking on a level, sandy beach: " The crest of some slow- arching wave, Heard in dead night along that table- shore, Drops flat, and after the great waters break Whitening for half a league, and thin themselves, Far over sands marbled with moon and cloud, From less and less to nothing." – Nature Mysticism by J. Edward Mercer
